Last night I realized what a sight David and I are right now. He is lying back in one recliner looking pitiful and I am lying back in the other one with my legs propped up. I am trying to take care of him as he is still recovering from the BOT surgery, while trying to rest enough since I am dead tired do to the pregnancy. I got an appointment with a high risk obstetrician yesterday due to high blood pressure and AMA (Advanced Maternal Age). What a hoot. David is slowly getting better and his speech sounds better every day. He still isn't swallowing and is supplementing ensure with tomato soup, orgain and whatever else he can shove down his tube. He really doesn't like the gravity feeding at all. He says if he can't tolerate the bolus feeding he is not going to be a happy camper. At least it seems that adding new things in to his diet is helping. One question. He keeps having a headache at his temple on the side in which he had the cancer. Could this be residual from one of his surgeries?
